Apple Crisp Filling

  • 5 medium apples (about 2 pounds), peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
  • juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Crumb Topping

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 6 tablespoons flour
  • 6 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 6 tablespoons cold salted butter, diced into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 6 tablespoons chopped nuts


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 6 (8 ounce) ramekins or individual baking dishes with butter-flavored or neutral-flavored cooking spray. Place ramekins on a baking sheet over parchment paper or aluminum foil for easier clean-up.

  2. Mix all filling ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Divide filling between ramekins. You can fill them all the way to the top – they will sink down when baking.

  3. For the crumb topping: Mix together oats, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
    You can use the same mixing bowl you used for the filling without washing it. Add butter. Work the butter into the mixture with your hands or a pastry cutter until crumbs form. Stir in nuts.

  4. Divide crumb topping between ramekins. Push down on the apples to fit in as much crumb topping as possible. Bake 40 minutes, or until the filling is bubbling and the top is nicely browned.

  5. Serve hot, great with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
